Ace in Space!

I picked up this cool GI Joe figure from neat little vintage shop known as Fantastic Mr. Finds.

I totally thought he was an astronaut, what with his helmet and white space suit.

His helmet is removable. Pretty neat!

Turns out he's actually Ace the fighter pilot! This American Hero was released in 1983, so he's as old as me! Also, since he's a fighter pilot n' all, he's 100% complete, well, minus his Skystriker fighter jet of course. But that's okay, he totally looks like an astronaut to me.

Ace makes peace with local life forms.

G.I. Joe Ace figure circa 1983

    1. Yeah, I really got a sweet deal here! I really wish I had a Skystriker fighter jet now.
